Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 launch: The gifts fans of the game will love

Fortnite fans rejoice, Chapter 2, Season 5 is finally here. For the uninitiated, Fortnite is the popular multiplayer online game set on an island where players are survivors of a storm that wiped out 98 per cent of the Earth’s population. 

The aim of the game is to fight against one another and earn experience points to unlock new characters, better weapons and “skins” (outfits). Since its launch in 2017, it’s become such a hit that it’s currently one of the most popular video games in the world. 

If you are a fan of the much-loved game, you’ll know that some big changes have been put in place. Following the Galactus live event, which saw players join forces with Marvel heroes to fight the in-game villain, there are now a number of new locations on the map to get excited about, including a quasi-Roman arena, a new jungle area, and a desert around the now exposed Zero Point. 

That’s not the only new element though, you can now pick-up quests from the new characters and even hire them to be your allies or challenge them to a duel. While the new in-game currency, Bars, means you can now buy weapons and purchase upgrades and services. 

The launch of Chapter 2, Season 5 has also seen the game’s brand new subscription service titled Fortnite Crew, offering users access to exclusive content.
